The versatile forward is expected to be out for up to three months with a double back stress fracture.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has publicly admitted he could be on the hunt for new talent this month whether it’s on loan or a permanent transfer.
But Starsport understands he won’t be able to recall Chilean flop Sanchez from Italy to relieve the pressure on his front line.

Solskjaer sent the former Arsenal man out on loan last summer as he continued to disappoint at Old Trafford.

Discussing Rashford’s injury, Solskjaer admitted that he is expecting the England man to be out for at least six weeks.
